Three Ways to Submit a Tip
Crime Stoppers offers three secure and anonymous options for submitting a tip:
Telephone (call the Tipline at 432-333-TIPS )
Mobile (download Crime Stoppers' P3 Tips App for iOS or Android )
Calls and tips are anonymous and Crime Stoppers may pay a reward if the information you provide leads to an arrest or grand jury indictment of a felony offender.
As long as the published tipline telephone number or website address instructions are used, tips are passed through a software program that removes all sender information. A tipster’s identity is never known to Crime Stoppers or any law enforcement officer/investigator. Anonymity is not Crime Stoppers’ promise, it is the law. In Texas, a person, including a law enforcement officer, may commit a crime if the person intentionally or knowingly divulges the identity of a Crime Stoppers Tipster. Crime Stoppers needs the information you have regarding crimes and criminals, not your name. To further ensure a tipster’s identity is never known, Crime Stoppers pays rewards only for anonymous tips; tipsters who identify themselves are not eligible for payment.
Crime Stoppers reviews the tip information and removes anything that might identify the Tipster, such as; “I live at 123 Any Street and the suspect lives in the green house next door to me”. Crime Stoppers then releases the sanitized tip information to the appropriate law enforcement officer for investigation.
Tips are accepted regarding any crime or wanted person, whether publicized by Crime Stoppers or not, but in-progress crimes and emergencies should be reported to law enforcement (dial 9-1-1 for emergencies) before Crime Stoppers.
